Problems with SRI implementation
Challenges
• Excessive weed growth as farmers can not readily
afford good weeding implements and they are not
available at low cost
• Rural development programs implemented by
successive governments (seeds and fertilizer
distribution) discourage use of own resources
• Conservativeness of farmers (many not too willing to
change), partly due to poor education
• Weak extension models and services
• Plenty of water in rice fields during the rainy season
Working with and through community
savings and Loan groups.(SILC)
SILC groups/members can make
themselves available for training
Training in Basic Surveying
How does SILC build up assets that influence structures and systems and support strategies for
Integral Human Development?
• SILC (Savings and Inter-Lending Community) helps
group members to learn new skills in bookkeeping,
accountability, transparency of transactions, savings
and lending policies and procedures, and setting up
of by-laws.
• SILC helps group members benefit from an insurance
fund/social fund that can be used for health care.
• SILC helps group members have extra income for
better nutrition and education.

AIM
Improving farmers’ yield and productivity,
thereby increasing the income and material
well-being of community members. This
project intends to develop 1 hectare area of
inland valley swamp (IVS) in the Mendesora
Village for its eventual cultivation of rice using
the SRI methods and intensive vegetable
cultivation. This general aim can be broken
down into five specific objectives:
OBJECTIVES
• To develop 1 hectare inland valley swamp area
for the cultivation of rice using the SRI method
followed by vegetable cultivation in
Mendesora Village in Koya Chiefdom in the
Portloko district.
• To establish a Community Tool Bank to
support agricultural activities in the village.
• To produce 5 tons of good-quality seed rice
annually.
OBJECTIVES
• To produce x tons of vegetable seeds annually
• To provide training for 50 farmers in basic
surveying, swamp development, SRI, and
vegetable production.
• To construct one irrigation well with culverts
for vegetable cultivation
Methodology and Beneficiary
Community
• Mendesora community will benefit from the
project and is selected according to the
presence of its successful functioning SILC
group and its involvement in agriculture as an
IGA . This criterion was decided for ensuring a
better and more participatory response from
the beneficiaries’ side that have been already
involved in other developing interventions and
are aware of ENGIM’s work.
Methodology and Beneficiary
Community
• Mendesora village belongs to an area
constantly monitored and visited by its
respective Field Extension Agents (FEAs),
whose tasks are to conduct regular
communities’ needs assessment, follow-up
visits of ongoing projects, check maintenance
and functioning of previous construction
interventions.
Methodology and Beneficiary
Community
• In this particular intervention, the FEA and the
community will be trained in basic surveying
and swamp development for a period of three
days and will start the swamp development
activities thereafter. This will be followed by
training in SRI methods of rice cultivation in
June, and in September also one training will
be conducted on vegetable cultivation. This
series of training will ensure best practices
during the implementation of key activities.
Achievements
• 1 Ha of inland valley swamp (IVS) developed
• Mendesora United (SILC) group now practising
SRI and attracts near by villages and farmers.
• 15% of members now working their fields
using the SRI method.
• Mendesora United group now has a
community tool bank.
• Members’ share-out has increased by 30%

  • 15. Problems with SRI implementation Challenges • Excessive weed growth as farmers can not readily afford good weeding implements and they are not available at low cost • Rural development programs implemented by successive governments (seeds and fertilizer distribution) discourage use of own resources • Conservativeness of farmers (many not too willing to change), partly due to poor education • Weak extension models and services • Plenty of water in rice fields during the rainy season
  • 16. Working with and through community savings and Loan groups.(SILC)
  • 17. SILC groups/members can make themselves available for training
  • 18. Training in Basic Surveying
  • 19. How does SILC build up assets that influence structures and systems and support strategies for Integral Human Development? • SILC (Savings and Inter-Lending Community) helps group members to learn new skills in bookkeeping, accountability, transparency of transactions, savings and lending policies and procedures, and setting up of by-laws. • SILC helps group members benefit from an insurance fund/social fund that can be used for health care. • SILC helps group members have extra income for better nutrition and education.

  • 25. AIM Improving farmers’ yield and productivity, thereby increasing the income and material well-being of community members. This project intends to develop 1 hectare area of inland valley swamp (IVS) in the Mendesora Village for its eventual cultivation of rice using the SRI methods and intensive vegetable cultivation. This general aim can be broken down into five specific objectives:
  • 26. OBJECTIVES • To develop 1 hectare inland valley swamp area for the cultivation of rice using the SRI method followed by vegetable cultivation in Mendesora Village in Koya Chiefdom in the Portloko district. • To establish a Community Tool Bank to support agricultural activities in the village. • To produce 5 tons of good-quality seed rice annually.
  • 27. OBJECTIVES • To produce x tons of vegetable seeds annually • To provide training for 50 farmers in basic surveying, swamp development, SRI, and vegetable production. • To construct one irrigation well with culverts for vegetable cultivation
  • 28. Methodology and Beneficiary Community • Mendesora community will benefit from the project and is selected according to the presence of its successful functioning SILC group and its involvement in agriculture as an IGA . This criterion was decided for ensuring a better and more participatory response from the beneficiaries’ side that have been already involved in other developing interventions and are aware of ENGIM’s work.
  • 29. Methodology and Beneficiary Community • Mendesora village belongs to an area constantly monitored and visited by its respective Field Extension Agents (FEAs), whose tasks are to conduct regular communities’ needs assessment, follow-up visits of ongoing projects, check maintenance and functioning of previous construction interventions.
  • 30. Methodology and Beneficiary Community • In this particular intervention, the FEA and the community will be trained in basic surveying and swamp development for a period of three days and will start the swamp development activities thereafter. This will be followed by training in SRI methods of rice cultivation in June, and in September also one training will be conducted on vegetable cultivation. This series of training will ensure best practices during the implementation of key activities.
  • 31. Achievements • 1 Ha of inland valley swamp (IVS) developed • Mendesora United (SILC) group now practising SRI and attracts near by villages and farmers. • 15% of members now working their fields using the SRI method. • Mendesora United group now has a community tool bank. • Members’ share-out has increased by 30%
